AS7717 – Signal Testing and Commissioning Management – Open Consultation

The draft of RISSB AS7717– Signal Testing and Commissioning Management has been released for open consultation.


The purpose of AS7717 Signal Testing and Commissioning Management is to provide a common framework for Rail Transport Operators (RTOs) to plan and execute the inspection, testing and commissioning of new and altered signalling infrastructure.

The concepts within this standard are intended to be applied throughout any railway signalling project, both in the context of a railway signalling and control system project, and during the operating life of the system.

This Standard defines what has to be done to effectively plan, execute and finalise the testing and commissioning activities, but does not detail the methods by which those requirements must or may be fulfilled

The draft of the Standard is now available for open consultation.
